Out on the
streets, cause I’ve nowhere to go.
Can I sleep in your doorway, would you have a spare box?
The answer’s the same, go away, get lost.
Out on the streets, lost and alone,
I've found me a doorway, and look there's a box.
I'll settle down inside before I'm told to get lost.
Out on the streets, it’s every man for himself,
food is a problem as there’s not much around
but the garbage can is full, so lets see what I've found.
Out on the streets, you will hear me cry,
I can't cope with this life out here on my own.
I just want to be loved; I just want to go home.
